the toolbar is relatively new, and I tested it only on Windows XP
using XEmacs.  So we'll have to see if we can work out why it won't
work on your system.

First off, can you get ESS toolbar on a different variant of windows
(e.g XP)?

Do toolbars work at all in Emacs 21.3 on Windows? e.g. when you start
up emacs with "emacs -q" do you get the basic toolbar?

Can you try running XEmacs to see if this is an XEmacs vs Emacs thing?

Great, this was the reason I put the toolbar in, to encourage people
to get into using ESS.  Let me know how it goes.
